Every airline has their own sets of fees and conditions (or not – thank you Southwest!) when canceling or changing your award flights.

We’ve scoured through many of the popular airlines, outlining them for you in some detail. Below are the award cancellation and changes fees, which we’re regularly updating.

Award Ticket Fees Tips and Info

Much like cash ticket cancellation and change fees, award ticket fees have varying costs and stipulations which can be very confusing. Here are some tips and information to help you understand them better for when you book your next award!

  • When you make a change, you may be required to pay the additional difference in mileage of the new route. You may not be refunded the mileage if it costs less, however.
  • In most cases, you will be able to get the taxes and fees you originally paid for the ticket, minus any fees to make said change. However, you may not always be refunded the mileage or may not get anything back.
  • Note that all fees are subject to change at any time and may depend on the type of fare you have booked. Always check your ticket’s terms and conditions when booking.
  • Most rewards have a validity date of one year from the original purchase. Outside of this validity, no further changes or refunds can be made in most cases.
  • Certain elite status tiers in many cases waive the award ticket fees.
  • Some airlines allow you to make same-day changes to a different flight, confirmed or standby, for the same fee as a cash ticket. In some cases, this is cheaper than the change or cancellation fees.

Credit Cards Travel Insurance and Award Tickets

Do credit cards that offer travel insurance cover you in the case of award tickets?

This is a tricky question. Cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card that contain trip insurance have lots of terms and conditions that must be met in order to claim the benefit.

The best advice here is to make sure you read the terms and conditions of your particular card and pay all taxes and fees with the card in question in order to be covered.
